Sonny and Victor Wanyama took part in the shoot-out in the AIA Vitality dome at the event where they struck an imaginary ball at a goal on a screen - see our Tweet from @SpursOfficial below - with South Korean forward Sonny coming out on top 3-1 against the Kenyan skipper.

It was a fun day just outside the city centre in Port Melbourne with Sonny and Victor joined by Tom Carroll, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Dominic Ball, Kyle Walker-Peters, Shayon Harrison, Will Miller, Luke Amos and Anton Walkes.

The lads were welcomed by AFL legend Shane Crawford, an all-time Aussie Rules great who achieved the lot at Melbourne-based Hawthorn Hawks and is now a TV pundit and newspaper columnist.

Hundreds of families turned out and the players happily signed autographs before joining in with a penalty shoot-out.

Earlier, our Global Coaching team set-up a number of football-based activities for the kids with legendary former skipper and Club Ambassador Ledley keeping an expert eye over proceedings.

AIA also handed over a cheque for $10,271 to the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation.
